Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!
The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

CatholicVote.org Calls on Governor Rauner to Resign
“Gov. Bruce Rauner made a promise to the voters of Illinois that he would focus on the fiscal mess in Illinois and remain neutral on social issues. Many Republican and conservative voters took him at his word and helped him win election in 2014.

“The Governor gave his word to legislators earlier this year and vowed to veto this legislation. Further, he promised the Cardinal Archbishop that he would not sign the bill. And just this week the entire Republican congressional delegation in Congress wrote to urge him to veto the bill. He chose instead to betray his political allies and friends. There is no sugarcoating the fact that he has lost the trust and confidence of the Republican Party in Illinois.
